LEXINGTON, Ky. — The success of any CSA depends heavily on the planning, organization, and efficiency of the farm operations and its people – a process that’s been analyzed, documented, and improved consistently for over a decade at the UK Organic Farming Unit.
Join Kristi Durbin, UK’s CSA Manager, as she shares the importance of data collection, documentation, and evaluation to improve procedures and efficiencies from field to harvest, including an overview of the crop planning and planting resources that she’s meticulously curated. Kristi will offer lessons learned regarding scaling up a CSA, training workers, packaging, and presentation.
In consideration of safety and respect for all hosts, participants, and staff, COVID-19 protocols for outdoor gatherings will be in place for this event, based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control, Commonwealth of Kentucky, and the University of Kentucky. Protocol will include limited attendance, social distancing, and face masks. Details will be finalized and provided in the week before the event.
Open to all, this Field Day is geared toward current or aspiring production farmers, and allied professionals. $5 OAK Members; $10 non-Members
